Our Passion

Barnstorming in the 1920's

Sometimes you just can’t get to sleep.  I began musing on a word from a pastor, Mike Ferry.  I had never heard of him, but his word was so right where we were at, that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. 

Here is an excerpt:  The Roaring 20s of 2020 are just moments ahead of us. God has released a new breed of Barnstormers in 2019! These bold, lionhearted world changers aren't driven by the crowds, the rush of adrenaline from the show, but the pure joy of seeing the hearts of their communities transformed. I see groups of this new breed gathering with a vision for regional impact. I believe an invasion of America's rural areas has already begun, which has yet to be heard about.*  Read the full article here.

Emerging Leaders in Nigeria, 2004

The Father's Love for the Prodigal Son “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him.” Luke 15:20

The four-hour journey to Ilorin, Nigeria was dark and seemingly endless. I had gotten food poisoning earlier in the trip so all I could do was just sit and listen to my Nigerian friends, Oluyole and Abraham, talk about the things of the Lord and the fire in the hearts of the emerging young leaders coming to Ilorin.  I wondered how this was affecting our Muslim driver.

And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Luke 10:2

It was a beautiful moonlit night and the desert air was still hot.  Sitting among the leaders around their personal fires for evening tea and listening to praise in French, English and Fufulde made the evening almost surreal.

I began reflecting on what the Lord was doing during our three day training of nomadic Christian leaders in the Muslim nation of Niger.  We had flown three and a half hours over empty sub-Sahara desert to the village that was the outreach base to a stil further out region.
